    A rights group has accused French police of using pepper spray on migrants in Calais on a regular basis but authorities deny the claims. French police are regularly using pepper spray against migrants in Calais, Human Rights Watch (HRW) said Wednesday, an accusation denied by authorities. In a report entitled “Like living in hell”, the use of pepper spray against migrants massed in the northern coastal city is described as “routine”. “Police use of pepper spray in Calais is so common that many asylum seekers and migrants had difficulty recalling precisely how many times they had been sprayed,” the report...

She is now leveling a litany of charges against U.C. Berkeley, the school’s police department, Chancellor Nicholas Dirks, President Janet Napolitano and Berkeley Mayor Jesse Arreguin....

    Several people wearing MAGA hats were singled out and hit hard by the masked Antifa cowards, who love to snatch these red hats and stomp on them. Meanwhile, a Trump supporter was kicked while on the ground, finally getting up with a bloody face. Berkeley will remain a sanctuary city for Trump supporters to get beaten up for their political beliefs. And now, the Trump crowd is fighting back. The next battle is due to take place on April 27 when The Berkeley College Republicans are hosting provocative conservative columnist Ann Coulter for a talk on immigration. The Antifa will...

    In a report on the state of crime problems plaguing Sweden, Katie Hopkins reported that pepper spray was illegal, because your rapist might be hurt. From the dailymail.co.uk: I followed up on the riots last week. Not a single arrest was made. After Peter's Facebook post, in which he drew attention to the volume of crimes allegedly perpetrated by migrants, he was branded a racist, a Nazi, a xenophobe I spoke to residents who know burglaries will not be attended, rapes not prosecuted, car fires accepted with a shrug, pepper spray banned in case your rapist is hurt.

    Gavin McInnes spoke for only three minutes without interruption until the jeers started. He exited the Rosenthal Pavilion in the Kimmel Center for University Life 20 minutes after he took to the podium and was escorted from a mixed room of jeering students and fans — once he was in the back, McInnes decided to leave the premise immediately. NYPD and NYU Public Safety Officers secured the interior and exterior of the building, and even before entering the building, McInnes was attacked with pepper spray and was promptly treated by EMT after security and university officials waited outside the Kimmel...

    Police pepper-sprayed a 15-year-old girl and charged her as a juvenile with assault and disorderly conduct after her bicycle hit a car, prompting disagreement Wednesday about whether the officers acted properly. Hagerstown Police Capt. Paul Kifer said the white officer who arrested the mixed-race girl had to subdue her with chemical spray to get her into a cruiser for a ride to the police station Sunday. Kifer said the girl had refused to cooperate with police trying to question her about the accident and find a parent to authorize her refusal to receive medical treatment from paramedics on the scene....

    ANAHEIM, Calif. — Supporters and opponents of Donald Trump clashed outside City Hall, and five people, including two little girls, were pepper-sprayed by a demonstrator during the heated confrontation, police said. No serious injuries and no arrests were reported in Tuesday’s clash as about 50 people confronted each other in the Orange County community. Backers waving US flags and pro-Trump signs were met by opponents and a shouting match began before a city council meeting where an anti-Trump resolution had been proposed. The council eventually chose to take no action on the measure. At one point, an opponent unleashed a...

    The number of Germans holding licenses for non-lethal weapons rose sharply over the last three months, as the refugee influx appears to have unleashed a wave of public insecurity. Between November and January the number of non-lethal weapons licenses rose by 21,000, bringing the total to 301,000 nationwide. The numbers come from a request made to the interior ministry by Green Party MP Irene Mihalic. [...] These licenses allow holders to carry blank-firing guns, pepper spray and other sprayed deterrents. ...

    With migrants flooding in by the thousands, (up to one million!) Germans are preparing to defend themselves any way they can, but without a Second Amendment, they're finding it difficult. All across the country – and in a country with some of the strictest gun control on the continent – Germans are buying up non-lethal self-defense weapons, like pepper spray, gas pistols, flare guns and animal repellants, the Gatestone Institute is reporting. German officials insist the recent interest in self-defense has nothing to do with the onslaught of refugees from the Middle East or the spike in violent crime recently....

    A federal judge has ruled that they way in which Birmingham police uses pepper spray "to enforce basic school discipline" is unconstitutional.The court found that police used excessive force in reaching for the chemical spray to "deal with 'normal -- and at times, challenging -- adolescent behavior.'"The ruling does not keep police officers from using pepper spray in violent situations like a fight. The ruling listed several things the police department and school system must have ready by November 15, including developing a new training procedure and decontamination process for the pepper spray. School resource officers and police must also create...

    The Saratoga Springs Police Officer who pepper sprayed a man that gave him the middle finger has been suspended without pay. The chief of police now says he's seeking to fire the officer. Officer Nathan Baker stopped Adam Rupeka back on May 16. At the time, Rupeka had just passed the officer and flashed the obscene gesture. He also had multiple cameras rolling. When the officer asked for license and registration, Rupeka demanded to know what law had been broken. After a back-and-forth of about 30 seconds, he was pepper-sprayed. Rupeka claims while it may not have been nice to...
